FA chairman Greg Clarke told a Commons Select Committee last year that openly gay players may suffer “significant abuse” and has suggested they come out collectively rather than on their own.

But Bosworth, a high-profile openly gay athlete, revealed he met Clarke and told him his approach must “change”.

“He really wants to get on top of it,” said the 27-year-old.
